  According to market projections by IDTechEx, the market for dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) will slowly grow to over $130 million by 2023.  
   
 Although initial products are aimed towards indoor and portable applications, starting out with chargers and solar bags with wireless solar keyboards demonstrated more recently, the end game for DSSCs is the ability to have these largely inexpensive solar cells incorporated into much bigger installations. For that purpose, development work is being undertaken in order to produce prototypes and demonstrators of DSSCs being utilised in applications such as bus shelters, steel roofing and others such as facades, semi-transparent windows etc. 
   
 DSSCs represent, together with organic photovoltaics (OPVs) the third generation of...

Muckle-Wells Syndrome Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Muckle-Wells Syndrome (MWS) is a rare, genetic autosomal disease which leads to urticaria, sensorineural deafness, and also leads to amyloidosis. The disease is mainly caused due to mutation of CIAS1 gene, that leads to increased production of interleukin 1B. Due to interaction of IL1B and skin receptors, the inflammation occurs, which leads to fever and rashes. The common symptoms include fevers, chills, deafness, arthritis, and recurrent urticaria.The episode of MWS usually lasts for around 48 hours. The disease belongs to a family of cryopyrin- associated periodic syndromes (CAPS),...
